After the failure of two tenders for the repair of cracks in El Cajon, the contract for approximately $30 million will be awarded directly.
Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica (ENEE) has $30 million available to carry out the work."We have to look at the parameters and see if the law allows us to negotiate a contract directly. When you do not have any bidders, you take the ones that are there and follow the path with them directly," said Emil Hawitt, manager of the company.
The second tender for repairing the cracks in the El Cajon hydroelectric station has been declared void because bidders lacked the required technical ability.
This is the second time that the tender to repair the leaks in the curtain and the rocky walls of the hydroelectric station Francisco Morazán, better known as "El Cajon", has been declared void by Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica (ENEE).

In late 2005, AES began developing the Changuinola hydro power project and currently the project is in the phase of building the roadways to access that facility. The formal cornerstone laying ceremony took place on October 25, 2007.
The project's total completion represents an investment of approximately $563 million and the estimated date for the Changuinola hydro power plant to go into commercial operation is the first quarter of 2011. Through this new facility, AES contributes to the country's development and helps face the growing demand of energy in Panama, which requires an additional 50 MW each year.
The construction of the new Changuinola I Hydro Power Plant:
* is an asset to Panama
* will generate clean and 100% Panamanian energy
* will create opportunities for previously excluded populations
* will contribute to solve the country's energy situation
* will help Panama to continue growing
The construction and operation of the hydro power plant will be under the responsibility of AES, a multinational energy corporation with world-class standards and an active presence in Panama.
